but as well as president grant humanitarian asylum to edward snowden praising the n.s.a. whistleblower for taking on what he called a villainous u.s. . supporters and opponents of the ousted egyptian president bartlet time from the streets with at least says he killed and over two hundred wounded as a nation splits apart plus. the capital of russia's republic of tarsus donald welcomes the twenty seventh some of you know that's out a step in the road to hosting feud child high profile sporting event.
coming to life from moscow and welcome to the problem. and it's a whistleblower edward snowden finally has a place to go with venezuela him asylum and an escape from legal limbo snowden is wanted and they do us on a spend charges for leaking days house america's global spy program and my colleague discuss the details with a reader going he's outside the moscow apple with what the whistle blower has been stranded since last month. he actually chose a very opportune moment to extend a helping hand to edward snowden he did it during a televised address during a parade dedicated to independence day and. on have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to the young american edward snowden in the home. and snowden to come and live away from the persecution of american imperialism this
one it does look like venezuela could possibly be the next stop that. the former cia agent could call possibly home for quite an extended period of time and anyone who flies out of moscow or even you're trying to get to central america they have to fly westward over the atlantic to the north american seaboard coming down the east coast of america which at that point is america as we all know you followed american airspace you could be grounded absolutely because this was the situation actually happened to the believing president who was flying out of moscow on july second but was forced to land in the airport after austrian authorities have requested the plane that the plane be grounded because of the suspicion that a former cia agent would be on board that plane information apparently. a u.s. diplomat in austria also. over some of the european countries
because the airspace of france italy spain and portugal was also closed for it for the very same reason of course the situation has left and not just the believe president but also the entire let. all decried the i think the politics of the united states saying that they were the ones who have essentially forced the european countries to to to obstruct the movement of the presidential plane and have also said that european countries at this point look more like colonial states the united states of. now we have to wait and see exactly how edward snowden going to get to venezuela i'm assuming there will have to be some paperwork done before he actually heads out of moscow to caracas and how exactly he's going to get there is another question because like you said he will have to fly over foreign countries air spaces but his lawyer wasn't alone in offering a helping hand to the former cia employee nicaragua said it would also offer asylum
if quote circumstances permit found a wide awake news channel mcgrath says it's puzzling how the ecuadoran european countries who voiced outrage at washington spying taxes failed to offer aid for the person behind the revelations the laundry list of nations that snowden has applied to for asylum include scores of these european nations that are just all giving the same excuses that he's got to either show up on their soil or in their embassy you know the information that's been released has shown that our allies in europe were the one the in a lot of cases the ones being spied on so for them just to play the well we don't want to we don't want to upset the americans so we're going to give the standard answer no you know no comment or he's got to show up at the embassy it's it's very much a pressure rating for people like me that want to see the truth come out but when
even when you expose the truth even when you give it this truth to the people who are being spied on they won't step up and support truth so yeah it is a bit frustrating to to see these european nations just kind of ignore this outright spying that's happening. the latest allegations are just two europe has also been carrying out its fashion have spying a french newspaper exposes the scope of the country's intelligence program and its collection of online and telephone days are both domestically and abroad we'll bring you the details very shortly. egypt's new interim president is expected to name a prime minister and cabinet later on saturday that's after violence and death march or the supporters of ousted president morsy called at friday of rage so to people were left dead and over two hundred injured in clashes and earlier my colleague were research i spoke to our correspondent about truth who's been following this is your nation in cairo. streets are now calm but sort of reeling
from the violence of last night's there was only chaotic in downtown cairo in the capital there were fierce clashes between supporters and opponents of the former president mohamed morsi i was actually in the street battles myself my source of billions with guns them on the tops of rocks people were breaking up bits of the pavement to throw at each other to stretch across three of the major bridges between on either side of the nile between these rival protest groups the security forces got involved for a while but they couldn't contain the violence but what's been done to ensure egypt does actually find some sort of political stability at this point we have heard that the interim president has moved the presidential palace and is expected to announce his cabinet this is hopefully going to put down some of the state institutions so that we can try and sort out the situation in the country which is becoming impossible in addition there have been rumors of talks begin between the muslim brotherhood group which is the islamist party that the deposed president
hails from and the military to people are looking to the miniature right now to control the situation as they are the only institution that really is organized enough or has the sort of power enough to be able to sort this out we saw quite a little amount of soldiers in the clashes last night people were actually criticizing the military for that saying you know where are the police where are the military the capital is on fire and they're probably playing quite a careful game at the moment as the tensions are very high many people here expect a curfew to be imposed as was imposed during the revolution following. the revolution we expect that to be imposed in addition we expect as i said the military to possibly be having to it to the muslim brotherhood green to try and rein in supporters come to some kind of political compromise to bring this country out of this chaos and political stalemates. and you can always find more information on this is haitian in egypt from belcher's tweets account that's at bi-lo tree and also that is our very own pulis clearwater in the developments just
type or to see underscore to get all the latest info from. it is the brotherhood in says the national leaders who announced a new government on wednesday did not represent that follows dr mohamed abdul aziz a leader of the sacramento islamic center in the u.s. believes that undermining the power of the ballot box will lead to catastrophe in egypt what happened in egypt is obviously mubarak's military going back in order to take the country back to the all marked man. as opposed to the revolution to the revolutionaries people who are cheering in the streets right now will be the first to cry tomorrow when we set the precedence that it's ok for people to go to the streets and for the military to oust an elected president what happens next so the country elects the other guy who happens to be a liberal or or a socialist or whatever and then the islamists and the supporters of morsi millions
of them will take to the street and then we oust the next guy and then we keep going this i mean that's not a democracy anymore that's that's the rule of the jungle. global trends for constant carole sund he says in a poor country any leader can reach the top via mobile but that won't make any difference. well it would the foundation of why the revolution began in the first place it wasn't an arab spring it was a lot of poor people you had most of the people living on ten dollars a day and that was the genesis behind the foundation behind the move barack overthrow you know people want to live a higher standard of life the vast corruption all the money of the top of the pyramid and the rest of the people having nothing and then when morsi came in he made it worse it wasn't that he was in islam is so much it could have been mickey mouse of mohamed morsi would have made no difference if the people had a standard of living that was going up rather than crashing as it was you know
about the long a gasoline lines tourism dog virtually and the country went into deeper poverty and that's really the genesis behind all of these many of these uprisings around not only egypt but around the world. this is. this our running on and see the u.k. government is accused of the denial of the numbers of people using food banks increased drastically and made forming wages and so with the wealth that's in plenty more stories i actually. feel. good.
picture. this is aussie. coming to live from moscow welcome back front's has reportedly been running a surveillance network against its own people comparable to markers in from a prison program although the french foreign minister called the claims in exact all this comes after the president francois hollande lashed out at the u.s. for spying on the european countries on his maria a state. he's building behind me in the eastern part of paris or rather the story bunker underneath it is the epicenter of a fresh spy scandal that has quilter's of the country's security services and it's from here that it's no kind of france's big brother snoots which people money touring millions of phone calls text messages faxes and e-mails to see what you.
think. what. it. tells you a little break. the french public is actually now very much you been receiving conflicting messages from their leadership late first here we are to revelation is over america's espionage president a long suffering to stop strategic retreat so the country leeteuk although you never escape the green light you're wrong the dollar starts next month alone to also condemn america say it's highly it's not what this do now it's been revealed france is it south doing exactly what it just very vocally denounced russia city of santa has put its best face on the twenty seventh well you know us to games are set
to kick off and this plan does opening ceremony presided love the dream appeared to as organizers apply the finishing touches on his post called took a walk around the bank. over the course of the next fortnight more than thirteen thousand athletes from one hundred seventy different countries are to descend on the majority of them staying here this is the university village a purpose built brand new university complex in the city center now despite the fact that the authorities say the finishing touches are still being applied to some of the venues the message is clear. is ready. every time. you are excited. that everything is going to go well that you don't have any trash . so why the confidence even if sometimes the venues where with
a little bit too late we go they will be ready on time. sometimes some of the things this is. hosting an event like this doesn't come cheaply official estimates say these games cost up to find the. design has seen a complete overhaul of its infrastructure with the development of new hotels and new transport network installed. around sixty four sporting venues at the built from scratch and this is the jewel in the crown of the county. forty five thousand . come saturday night will be packed to the rafters what is hoped to be a spectacular opening ceremony and don't worry about his legacy because as of next season russian premier league side. will be playing their home games here it's also said to be a venue twenty eight team football world cup but of course it's not just on dry land where the medals are going to be decided here the aquatics palace swimming
synchronized swimming and diving goals are all up for grabs in fact of the three hundred fifty one golds available in total fifty eight are going to be decided here . despite the hefty cost involved in hosting these games organizers a keen to point to the legacy it will provide in order to get the games. to begin procedures and to begin procedures a big part is because of the points are attributed to to go to d.c. and i think this is very important in order to to have the public with your project that's everything that you are building would not be only one shops project but that will be to the public afterwards although the opening ceremony isn't until saturday evening some competition has already started causing a stir at the athletes' village where super excited we are just simply happy it's different yeah it's exciting it's nice to have a better than that's much more than i expected so very good fourteen of the sports
are optional these include the likes of rowing and rugby sevens all five sports are making their debut here and including boxing was complete idiots and so now i'm off to the university and that would be a great increase in boys and girls willing to learn books in such a great atmosphere i don't know if inspiring the next generation of sporting greats is the objective of hosting events like this then russia will get up at unity over the next few years the world athletics championships winter olympics world swimming championships and the world cup all coming to the sure by two thousand and eighteen the organizers therefore hoping that these games will show that russia is ready to welcome the sporting world got altie because. as a big global economic rivalry between washington and beijing also to not chinese investors an opera pairing a massive deployment of rights in america's backyard the construction of
a canal connecting back land take on a second oceans through nicaragua is due to begin next year also by a chinese front aussie business host pale bam now recall. the idea of a canal terry nichols has been kicking around for over one hundred fifty years now that a chinese businessman has dumped up forty billion dollars from global investors it could become a reality now the owner of hong kong based hate and degree of his funding to start building the canal in twenty forty which they claim will be ready for action by twenty twenty so let's have a look at the that it will be able to say that the plan is to build one hundred seventy eight mile was way connecting the caribbean and the pacific and it would be three times longer than the panama canal which took a decade to complete now the group faces wide criticism over its
plans and i spoke to asia expert david who dismissed event as a joke i'm hoping it's a joke i'm just hoping that it maybe some some things are. too much time because if you think about it. there wasn't already taken out. west and east you wouldn't really sort of think about putting one in the ground we were anyway it was a really good one. reason why panama with children was because it was the shortest distance between the land. so why would anybody want to do a new you know that is actually going from east to the west coast because it doesn't make any sense. bartley investors behind the project insist that world trade needs a new worries and that the panama canal is not enough to handle the trade already conducted between the east and west so those who are laughing at the project right
now might just have to change their tune if this game changing projects succeeds. the hunger strike could go on time of day now in its sixth month will enter perhaps its toughest period on monday when the holy muslim feast of ramadan begins fast i should say that's according to lawyers for the detainees who claim the u.s. military authorities running the facility preparing to operate a force freezing fog tree attorneys say the forty five inmates who are currently being fed against their will will struggle to survive in the coming weeks apart from going without water during daylight hours as part of ramadan they also face lights in cells with nothing to drink after the painful force feeding procedures through the parks is has been slammed worldwide as torture but he has maintained the measures necessary to prevent u.s. military law a barrier when god advocates one of the prisoners says there's no excuse for keeping people looked up without charge or trial ninety eight percent of these men
have no allegations against them to say we can't release them because they might do something in the future is completely ridiculous what we understand that guantanamo bay is there because we're fighting the emotion of terror internationally but that the fact that we're fighting something that can't be conquered in the fact that one time obey remains open it's still just in should be rectified immediately we can't allow this in this humanitarian violation to continue i think there's a sense in washington d.c. that you know we don't care whether these men did anything or not they're going to stay in guantanamo bay forever because it's good for us politically and that is completely the wrong answer you know if president obama wanted to he could at least attempt to stop the hunger strike i was the guantanamo bay last week and i saw no indication of any action to even end the hunger strike let alone send these men back home or give them justice in some form. besides the human cost growing time
obeys also clocking in i have to be one hundred fifty million dollars a year that's nearly a million being spent on every single detainee that compare that to the course of regular inmates housed in the us which is around twenty five thousand dollars while the average american is nearly a thousand times less than the annual spending on a single gone in mate. and online as well where bringing you the latest from the can to new hunger strike the notorious for so that he so log on to our website to follow the process with our grand time a timeline at r.t. dot com. a story numbers of britons are resorting to food banks to get enough to eat but the work and pensions minister claims just because more than half a million people need help to fill their bellies that doesn't mean government
spending cuts are to blame also his staff reports now on those. austerity might be a word that until not long ago was. now though it's on everyone's lips in real terms as well stare at he bites food poverty is rising half a million people are now dependent on food banks according to figures in a recent joint report compiled by charities church action poverty. which many see as a direct result of mounting social spending cuts and the burden of care is often calling charitable organizations such as this one so this is where all thought the distribution in the kitchen with the warring gradients. and this is a six week operation so don't get kicks him kicking felt nice and early and then once it's done it's sensible and turn the cold bit accepted by your. then
yes the dying case and some new people. and it have you seen lots of new people. you know what types of people. unemployed people young people live in squats. most of them are in. the people for no income and benefits before. they even number and dependence on feed banks have been steadily increasing something governments are playing down the connection with policy on the rise today. report prices and then say how has the charity operate. six days a week it's a big operation and a thousand people work for you they. get government funding are used to unfortunately council they cut the funding for all the day centers so now we're on
the wrong foot luckily we got a couple of supermarkets interested in diverting the food from. this would normally all the strawberries bananas examining would normally end up in. so so you're saving the environment and recycling back into the community and obviously helping people who are going hungry and there's a lot of people nowadays going hungry but we've seen a huge number of people using this service today and services like this to become even more pivotal in the future the government might just have announced another round of paying for the stories he measures but the truth is the u.k. can stay on this deficit reduction policy while many in government know it's looking forward to the future past the next election is that there could be much much worse to come. sarah. lunde. coming your way i've been lost in concert this pain of mainstream easy again breaking.
as a person who lives in russia i get asked very often why automated console fat well are americans actually fat or is this just a myth from some hater countries the centers for disease control have declared obesity to be a disease that's a twenty point nine percent of adult americans are obese and that is an all time high people blame the sedentary lifestyle as the cause yes if you were out all day at work and then all evening after driving home sure doesn't help your waistline but problems can have multiple causes and the authors of the book rich food poor food believe it could be tied to eight foods that are allowed in america but are banned in many other countries across the globe some of these chemicals and
techniques and foods that are banned by some other countries are a less strong which is in many snack products which lower scale worries but kills your body's ability to absorb minerals brought native flour which saves tons of time for the baker but beats up your internal organs and of course our good old friend synthetic growth hormones which are in livestock which have been linked to cancer big problems really have simple solutions you can run around and exercise as much as you like but if you're being pumped full of these chemicals that are illegal in much of the world well your chances of fitting into that bathing suit are ironically slim but that's just my opinion. you live on one hundred thirty three bucks a month for food i should try it because you know how bad the less bad luck i got so. i mean happy and sad that i'm still really miss.
the old story so actually. it's. worse for the little white house for the. three. minutes for the. globe are about to produce never seen anything like this until. welcome to breaking the set i'm your host abby martin you know it seems that on every issue important to americans the problem reaction and solution is always framed by the two dominating political parties in this country the problem is that these two teams democrats and republicans more closely resemble a single party one that stands for and periods and corporate gain yet several political ideologies are gaining traction in the us but have virtually no representation in the political and media establishment so if you've tuned into the
show hoping to hear the dueling perspective of democrats and republicans well you've come to the wrong place because today i'll be hosting a discussion with people who represent the voices of a growing alternative will be talking about libertarianism anarchism and socialism very philosophy is gaining momentum as more people are becoming disillusioned with the status quo to talk about everything from the role of government to an ideal society i'm joined now by a brilliant panel and breaking the set's first ever alternative voices debate starting with scott crow author of black flags and windmills and founder of the anarchist common ground collective and peterson production director at freedom works and editor of libertarian republic dot com and eugene puryear former vice presidential candidate of the party for socialism and liberation thanks so much all of you for coming on thanks so much for having us before we start to this epic debate or conversation rather i want to briefly outline your political ideologies and about.
